  • ... the scenes of the homeless lining up along the streets with what's left of their possessions echoes with the armies of homeless in the 1932 depression.

    What an intense drama! I really liked this movie, it was so sad, borderline melodramatic, and realistic. A great pre-code film, if you like them you should see this one. The story is brilliantly put together, the actors are great, and it's got a realistic feel through to the sad ending. I highly recommend it.
